How to Use - A Guide to Our New Website


We love crafts and this site has been tailor built by crafters for crafters, this site is for everyone whether you want to share your handmade projects, gain new skills or just unwind for a few minutes browsing the project pages. Let us show you round the site and its new features; 


Join In


We have made it easier to join the Trimcraft community; instead of having to manually register - you can now log in with your Facebook account (existing members can also link their Trimcraft account with their Facebook account once you're logged in). Not on Facebook, not a problem! It takes less than a minute to register your details and create an account with us the traditional way. Once you're logged in there is a wealth of information at your fingertips, browse the galleries, chat in the friendly forum or spend some time reading our crafty new feed. 


Tags 


A clever new feature on the website is the tagging system, you may have already notice them throughout the website. Click on one and every topic associated with that tag will be in front of you before you can say ‘papercraft’. When adding a project to the gallery you can add tags to making it easier for people to find in the search engine. We told you it was clever! 

Some common tags to get you started:

  • site-info (any content directly related to us as a company, our website, or our terms and conditions)
  • brands (find out all about the different brands that we offer)
  • card-making (I'm sure you can guess what you'll find here! )


Stay in Touch 


If you love the website we regularly update our features so make sure you come back soon! We also have a Facebook page and have you seen our Tweets? All that when we aren’t pinning stuff on Pinterest. Last but not least don’t forget the You Tube page where we will be getting all savvy with video tutorials. Phew that’s a lot of ways you can stay in touch.

On top of all that, when you're reading any of our articles, or viewing project ideas, looking at products - you'll be able to leave a comment right there on the page. Try it today, scroll down the page and you'll see the comments section.


Sharing is Caring 


We think you would agree it’s nice to share! Seen or read something you like then share it with your friends or followers on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest with the click of a button. You can also 'like' other member's projects. This will let them know they've done a great job, and also will allow us to recommend lots of other great projects that we think you might like.


Colour your world 


One swanky new feature on the Trimcraft website is the option to choose your colour theme, from bold green with a hint of orange to cool purples. Just head to the top toolbar to make your selection.
